We’re back today with another cute hairstyle that is perfect for school or sports. Ever since we figured out how to do a 3 Strand Twist, Bee has wanted one in her hair. Since I’m not one to do the same hairstyle over and over, we’ve been having fun doing different versions of the 3 strand twist in her hair, adding different elements along with it. I love this hairstyle because it combines 3 different types of twists and looks great from all angles! But first, if you missed our post last week, my oldest daughter finally revealed her name, so be sure to check out her name reveal video HERE!
Here’s our quick video showing how it’s done. If you have issues viewing it here on our blog go HERE on our YouTube channel to watch it.
1 – Make an off-center part on the right side of the head, and then part down from the crown to the left ear.
2 – With all remaining hair from the right side and back, gather the hair into a ponytail. Secure the ponytail off-center on the right side of the head with a ponytail holder.
3 – Back to the hair from Step 1, near the top center of the forehead, divide out a small triangular piece of hair. Divide that hair into 2 sections.
4 – Pass the left (or bottom) section over the right (or top section) so they trade places.
5 – Add hair to the left (or bottom section) and cross it back over to now be in the right (or top) position.
6 – Drop the left or bottom section down and add more hair to it. Then cross it back over so it is again in the right or top position.
7- Repeat this process, adding hair to the left section and crossing it over, until you run out of hair to add near the left ear.
8 – Once you cannot add anymore hair, continue creating a regular rope/twist braid. Twist the 2 sections of hair until it reaches the ponytail.
Watch our rope/twist braid video HERE if you need a refresher on how it’s done.
9 – Secure it to the base of the ponytail with an elastic.
10 – Divide the ponytail into 3 sections. Make the center section a lot thinner than the left and right sections.
11 – Create a 3 strand twist.
Refer back to our 3 Strand Twist tutorial if you need help creating it. But by having one strand be thinner it adds a totally cute look to this. We really like the different look it gives to the ponytail.
12 – Twist all the way down to the end and secure the 3 strand twist with an elastic.
FINISHED TWISTED COMBO HAIRSTYLE!
As you can see, this combines 3 different types of twists – a French rope twist, a regular rope twist, and then a 3 strand twist. There are so many other ways you could mix things up to create this cute twisted hairstyle. Mix things up and see what you come up with!
